Bayern Munich sweep past Bayer Leverkusen to maintain perfect start to season

15/09/2018

Corentin Tolisso scored with a snap shot before injuring his knee in Bayern Munich's 3-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

The France international equalised for Bayern after Wendell had put the visitors ahead with a retaken penalty but had to go off before the break after colliding with Kevin Volland.

Tolisso immediately clutched his right knee as he fell down, and needed help leaving the field as he made way for James Rodriguez.

Leverkusen had a great start when Thiago Alcantara conceded a penalty for handball in the second minute.

Volland took the spot kick but Manuel Neuer saved his weak effort and denied him again from the rebound. However, referee Tobias Welz ordered the penalty to be taken again as too many players had encroached in the area.

Wendell took responsibility and gave Leverkusen an early lead.

Tolisso cancelled it five minutes later, first with a bit of luck to get past Jonathan Tah and he then sent the ball inside the top corner.

Arjen Robben followed minutes later with an even better effort inside the far corner with his left boot.

Leverkusen's hopes of an equaliser took a blow when substitute Karim Bellarabi was sent off for a raking challenge on Rafinha, and James sealed the home side's third win from three games with a header in the final minutes.

Leverkusen have now started with three defeats.
